The remote is a virtual twin of the remote that came with the last Toshiba we tested, and features a good layout, with legible button nomenclature and a large numeric keypad. The one big drawback compared to some other TV remotes is the lack of dedicated input buttons, which means toggling through the various inputs can be a chore if there are lots of source components connected to the set. It does feature backlighting though, which is a plus.
The Toshiba provides tremendous picture adjustment flexibility, which will certainly appeal to the video enthusiast who wants to tweak the picture to their heart’s content. While the default AutoView setting is notable for providing both backlight level and picture level adjustments according to ambient room lighting conditions, the color saturation is way on the high side. The Movie mode provides an overall more natural-looking picture, but the color level still needs to be turned way down.
